The Spreen dealer page on the site:
https://www.thesamba.com/vw/archives/info/dealers/billspreen_atlanta_ga.php

There is no plate frame there so it's probably a long shot since one has never popped up and been added to the site, assuming it even exists.
It probably does though since there are other dealer materials and it looks like a big dealer in a major city.

You could place a wanted ad on the site.
Watch eBay too but it may take a long time.

New to posting on the Samba. Most of these threads are pretty old.

I am looking for a dealer badge and/or a license plate frame for Vern Hagestad Motor Company, VW in Denver. There are many photos of these, but I can't figure out how to say that I want one. Help!!!

Picked up a couple of frames recently. The Countryside one has been touched up, and there is a photo of this one in the listings already, but this one is a little nicer. The other is obviously not VW, but is tangentially related. Anyone know what era Cotton Goff sold Alfa? Found a little info that they were at least a dealer in 76-77 ish.

Thanks, I'll grab that VW plate frame for the dealer pages.

I don't know myself on the Alfa sales, I wonder if it was even the same location

I can take a picture of just the MN frame if you would prefer.

Was hoping to get an idea of the era of that Alfa frame. I figured on mounting a plate in there for display.

Looking thru my stash on a boring rainy day and came across my old RICKETTS Long Beach california dealer frame it’s an early ribbed frame with both Porsche and vw logo’s. I’ve never seen another like this one although I’m sure they are out there.

A couple of months ago my wife did a lil horse trading and scored me my personal “Holy Grail” of tag frames! Superior VW of Pensacola Fl. And it’s the earlier of the 2 versions.

Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.


A pic of this same frame has been in the dealer listings for a few yrs now (bottom of page) But I don’t know who had it then.
Early last yr at a local Cars and Coffee I got to talking to the guy parked next to me with his ‘71 Standard. Some how we got to talking about dealerships and as we’re walking around his bus he proceeds to tell me about how he traded tag frames with a guy at a show up north because that guy just happened to have one from Pensacola. Man! Talk about my utter shock when I saw it. I kept my composure and tried not to nerd out but the second my wife walked up she knew something was up. After I told her she waited until I walked away and started working out a deal with the guy!
I ended up trading out a University VW tag frame I had just acquired for the Superior. Well worth it in spite of the fact I’m trying to get anything I can from the Pensacola dealerships.
